Click it or Ticket Campaign to Begin

Beginning on May 21st, and continuing through May 31st, travelers can expect increased police presence on Liberal Streets as the Liberal Police Department joins 180 other law enforcement agencies in aggressively enforcing Kansas occupant restrain and other traffic laws as part of the 2021 Kansas Click It or Ticket campaign. This activity is supported by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT).

Here is the aim of the Click It or Ticket campaign: to drastically reduce the number of preventable deaths and injuries that occur when unbelted drivers and passengers are involved in traffic crashes. About 345 persons are involved in 170 crashes each day in Kansas. Only 7% of those that are unbelted are likely to escape without injury. Half of all fatalities occur among those who are not wearing a seat belt.

May 21-31 drivers will be met with extra enforcement of both the Kansas Safety Belt Use Act and the Kansas child Passenger Safety Act. These statues require that all vehicle occupants must be appropriate restrained.

Stay safe and wear your seatbelt!
